Thanks to Elisa Romero-Malik for this week’s wedding wisdom:

“I would advise brides to communicate their “vision” and ideas to their vendors very clearly. Bring as many pictures as possible so that the wedding cake, bouquets and flowers turn out exactly as you envision. I learned a lot about flowers during the wedding planning process. My only regret was not to budget for lighting as that completely transforms a space and would have completed the romantic and whimsical look that I wanted.”
